Volcanic Basalt Furniture by Maffam Freeform

Today we will show not only single example of creative furniture but the whole collection. The following line of indoor/outdoor furniture and objects are made from volcanic basalt fibers and natural resin. This line was created by company Maffam Freeform headed by Latvian designer Raimonds Cirulis. The shapes and textures of the pieces are beautiful and just as interesting as the material they’re made from. "Basalt is a dark-colored rock that’s most often formed from lava flow. They take the molten basalt rocks and stretch them through a special spinner, which creates the fiber yarn needed to construct the furniture. The process is done by hand which means each piece of furniture is truly one-of-a-kind. The material is ultra durable making it perfect for outdoor use." Take a look!
